26 Weeks 3 Days

13 Weeks 4 Days to go!!

Okay this is late again I know but with Albany and being NY in general there isn’t much time to do much of anything! So I’ll start with what the Baby Bean is up too this week.

How your baby’s growing:

The network of nerves in your baby’s ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner’s as you chat with each other. He’s inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he’s born and takes that first gulp of air. And he’s continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you’re having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.

Also here are my weekly belly photo update!

I put my sisters to work with these…
So we took like a million pictures (I would say about 23) because since my sister is short she kept taking it from an upward angle. Now I don’t know about everyone else but looking up at my double chin is never pretty! So I kept saying “Okay let me see what it looks like” “Can you not get my chin in?” and finally “JUST GET MY STOMACH!” Anyway we’re sharing this tiny hotel room so of course the whole time Luke is there watching and listening being the little sponge that he is! And he goes can you take my picture? And I’m like sure…So he proceeds to lift up his shirt and says to me “Take a picture of my stomach”
So Obviously I did…Then he says to me “Let me see the picture” He looks at the picture and says, “Can you not get my chin?, Only get my stomach”! I almost died right then and there! How cute is he! So here’s my little Luke’s tummy!
And that’s how we got this cute picture!
And Finally my favorite. Please ignore where my Belly Button ring used to be. I kept it in way too long once I found out I was pregnant. I had just gotten it redone and was super upset I had to get rid of it! So I kept it in till i was just about to pop which resulted in a not so nice healing and an ugly brown spot! B kept telling me to take it out…Hate to say it BUT I should have listened to him!
Also I had my appointment today, things are still looking good. Heartbeat was strong. It was such a quick appointment probably spent 20 minutes there altogether! But after I got home I got a little nervous about something so I went back to the doctors, they ended up doing a sonogram. Luckily everything was just fine and I got to see my little Bean again, so I was excited! The technician even printed out another picture for me so that was nice! It’s so amazing to see Bean on that screen can’t wait for the real life meeting!
